“The best Cottage Ever!”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Old Farm Cottage was simply fantastic -- three full bedrooms with double beds in each, a large dining room, separate living room with wonderful fireplace, a kitchen with everything you need to cook, and fantastic deck overlooking the country side with a new grill. We even had a garage to store our tandem bicycle, and off street parking for the car. The cottage was super clean, quiet, and really was a home away from home. The kitchen was so functional, we cooked all our meals at the cottage! Hugh and Nina (the owners) were special, giving us great guidance on things to see and cycle routes to ride. We have been traveling to Europe almost every year for over 10 years, and Sligo and the Old Farm Cottage was one of the very best trips and places to stay ever -- 5 "gold" stars!

Hi Bill and Stephanie. It was our pleasure to have you as guests. You were very lucky with the weather which made the holiday for the cycling. Ireland is a different country in the sun. Many thanks for the lovely review. Best wishes Hugh and Nina

Lovely house for a family break in Sligo. Caitriona and Hugh were great hosts. The chickens provided some fun entertainment for the kids.

Hugh and Catriona greeted us as we arrived - Hugh walked us through each room of the cottage, showing us where everything was. We are 2 senior Canadian couples and particulary appreciated his introduction to the heating and hot water systems as the setup is very different from a Canadian heat & hot water system. Even with his run thru, it took time to fully understand it. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the welcome package was great - the bread, butter, milk, jam and dozen free range eggs were most appreciated! Even got additional eggs during the week!
Hugh was quick to answer our questions and provided helpful Sligo and area arractions, pubs, restaurants, grocery stores etc.
Warned us about the one way streets in Sligo and provided directions to assist us in driving the area. When Alex and Mary, the other couple with us encountered wifi issues, Hugh provided a workaround for them.

“Perfect Location for Town and Country”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Booked the cottage as a family of 5 (three teenagers) in preference to a hotel in town. The cottage is close to town (5-7 min drive) but in a very scenic spot. A great size to spread out in as a family and everything you need provided - including a generous welcome basket. Hugh and Catriona were lovely - very helpful with advice on sights and restaurants to try and always easy to contact. Kids loved having chickens outside and sheep in the field next to us. If we come back to Sligo (very likely) we will definitely book again.

The eggs were the best we've ever tasted.

Great location, very close to Lough Gill and Dooney Rock.
